What you’ll do
Watch a screening of ‘The Joy Inside Our Tears’, Harold Offeh’s installation in our ‘Joy’ gallery. Then listen to a conversation between Harold and curator George Vasey.
They will discuss the inspiration behind the piece, including Harold’s interest in collective dance in relation to traumatic histories, from queer communities of colour in 1990s danceathons to medieval dancing plagues. They will also talk about the context of making art about collective joy during a national lockdown.
This event will be live-streamed on Wellcome Collection’s YouTube channel and available to watch afterwards. After booking a ticket, you will receive a confirmation email with joining instructions.
You will be able to comment and ask questions live online using YouTube Live Chat and via Slido during the event. Your microphone and camera will be switched off for the whole session.
